    It's only taken me over two years to notice the arm rest is a different colour to all the other leather in the car, seats door cards etc. Mine has silver nappa interior I was wondering if anyone has got the set from Ebay, and what their experiences are? They do a set of three so I could potentially change the black hard brake and gear lever too.
    Some pictures would be nice if anyone has done this.
    Thanks

    I recently fitted an armrest to my e36.It was a cloth cover,so I bought the matching leather cover from the "topgaiters" seller on the bay.Took the old cover off and fitted the leather one using some spray glue.Worked a treat and looked great!

    if you lift the arm rest up there are 2 or 3 hidden black bungs they come out and there are screws that seperate the material and plastic then u can take the old one off and then just slide new one on and trap it back on with the plastic part and put the screws and bungs back in easy , sorry if u already know about this

    Soz I haven't got any pics, but I've done this in a friends car and was pretty straight forward to do. I'm also going to do my two bimmers in the new year once I sort out all the other stuff lol.
    IMO, its worth doing if you want to update your leather.
